They’re trying to scare us to death with The Omicron Variant (by Robert Ludlum?)… and is it really too late for them to snatch our Christmas from us?
Yeahbut, yeahbut! Dude, you don’t understand the threats we face! At any minute it could all go up in smoke! All those COVID variants, past, present, and yet to come! Climate Change! The Jan. 6 Insurrection! Oh there’s just no end to it!
Ah, but–Government to the rescue! Big government. Really, really big.
This is what normal people don’t understand about hyper-humanism. Hyper-humanists genuinely, passionately believe that they should be gods (because the real one doesn’t exist, blah-blah) and that they, as gods, must control everything. Must and can. Everything.
Give them enough power, enough money, enough Science, and they will protect us from anything that might harm us. The sun’s heat output, or shortfall thereof. Volcanoes. Ocean currents. Continental drift. And that’s just for starters, that’s just warmups. They’re also going to wipe out war, poverty, disease, inequality (?? what do they even mean by that?), and eventually… death itself. Immortality for everyone who gets himself uploaded into a computer.
And at the very heart of it, the insatiable lust for power over others. And if COVID can get it for them, they’ll keep COVID around forever. They control us with fear, so they have to reserve stuff for us to be afraid of. So we cling to their skirts and weep into their aprons. Watch for Systemic Racism to be around forever, too. “With just a little more power, we can beat it!” We’ve already heard them say these things.
Smite them, O God. Amen.
